Fellow NNCG members:
It’s exciting to have joined the NNCG as an Associate Member. While not new to consulting, I am still early in my work in philanthropic advising. I have a long-time family foundation client here in the Washington, DC area, and it’s been a pleasure helping them improve their grantmaking practices and advance their philanthropic goals in this region.
These types of professional networks are a great asset and resource. I was for many years a member of a very similar national network whose members are independent fundraising consulting practices. I deeply appreciated the collegiality and friendships I developed over the years with this group. So I am looking forward to getting involved with NNCG.
If anyone is interested in collaborating or is in need of an additional pair of hands (and a few extra brain cells) I hope you will feel confident to reach out. I’m a 35-year veteran of the nonprofit sector and understand both sides of philanthropy – the funder and the funded.
